40,000 tickets for next year’s T In The Park festival went on sale this morning. They were sold out within 65 minutes.

The police statistics from last weekend’s T in the Park were as follows:

Tayside Police made 66 arrests at T in the Park, four fewer than the 70 made at the festival last year. Of those arrested, 30 were kept in custody, 16 for drugs-related offences and the remaining 14 for a mixture of offences including assault, breach of the peace, and theft.

It’s interesting then to do the compare and contrast exercise with Oxegen. Per Georgina O’Halloran in yesterday’s Irish Times:

GardaĆ­ made 49 arrests over the course of the weekend, including 48 arrests for public order offences and one assault. There were 320 drug seizures and 17 detentions under Section 15 of the Misuse of Drugs Act.

Both Oxegen and T In the Park attracted 80,000 fans.

Mmm, wonder when the early bird tickets for next year’s Oxegen will go on sale? And how fast it will take for them to sell out?
